Described by The Herald Time reviewer Peter Jacobi as " a breathtakingly lovely intermezzo" for their appearance in the American Liszt Society concert, baritone Bruno Sandes and pianist Shelley Hanmo Qian aim to establish a conversation with the audience; to provoke, illuminate, touch and inspire. Karen Shaw, Professor of Piano at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music, defined Sandes & Qian Duo's performance as "truly artistic, totally professional, demonstrating the kind of poise and assurance all should strive for in performance."
Established in 2013, Sandes & Qian Duo won grand prize in the Latin American Music Recording Competition at Jacobs School of Music with a project named Minha Terra, which features Brazilian chamber songs from various origins. Their debut CD album Minha Terra was released in 2014, with immense support from internationally known musicians, composers, and artists. Besides performing Latin American music, the duo introduces new languages, sonorities and realities through classical, traditional, folk and contemporary vocal/piano music. Sandes & Qian Duo's mission is to advocate innovative music programs, to pursue authenticity in music making, to embrace the changing world with passionate performances, and to reach out to a diverse community.
